|NEWSLETTER - April 2012|
The past month has been very busy, with a lot of researchers responding to our claim to be able to find pretty much any image they need. When they requested the Russian gesture meaning 'too complicated' and a dandelion growing in a rainwater gutter, our photographers supplied the images they needed.
Whether it is as bizarre as a giant hogweed burn or as exotic as The Dubai Smile Dental Center, the huge variety of photographers worldwide available through our Picture Search service means someone, somewhere, can get you the shot.
So, if you have any stock photo needs which you just can't seem to find, please give it a try!
Photographers Direct. Run by photographers, for photographers.
Here is the latest news from some of our photographers:
|Currently spending a year photographing various countries in Asia, Kimberley Coole is available for assignment or commission both locally and internationally, specialising in travel photography.

"Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. It is an amazing experience to observe and photograph such varied cultures and I see it as a great privilege that I am able to share the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen with others. The images taken by other photographers have inspired me throughout my many adventures, so now I hope my own contributions will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves.
My philosophy is to take positive photographs highlighting the best a place has to offer, whether that is the vibrancy of the landscapes or traditional costumes, the warmth and friendliness of the people or the architectural grandeur of its ancient monuments."
